This latest research project
began when Prof. Jon Paulien, Chairman of the NT Department at Andrews
University Theological Seminary, and Prof. Ranko Stefanovich, Professor
of NT and author of the widely acclaimed Commentary on Revelation, invited
me to investigate the question of The Mark and the Number of the Beast.
The plan was for me to share my findings on Tuesday, November 8, 2005,
with their three seminary classes on Revelation meeting on the same day.
Both professors were eager for me to investigate the use of the papal
title Vicarius Filii Dei–Vicar of the Son of God, both in official
documents and on papal tiaras. The aim was to establish if the numerical
value of the letters of this title, represent a legitimate interpretation
of the number 666 (Rev 13:18).
Approximately 150 seminary students, plus numerous visitors
attended the three lectures. With the help of 60 slides, I shared my preliminary
findings on the numeric interpretation of the Number 666 of the Beast,
especially as it relates to the papal title Vicarius Filii Dei.
The response surpassed my fondest expectations. Practically
every person who attended the lectures, was eager to order the CD-ROM
album. The CD-ROM disk consists of 195 slides with the respective explanatory
script for each slides. This CD-ROM is ideal for pastors, evangelists,
teachers, or any Adventist looking for slides and information to present
a study on The Mark and Number of the Beast.
Many Adventists who learned about this research, asked
me to make a video-recording of the lecture so that they could enjoy watching
it in their homes and churches. To fulfill this request a TV crew recorded
my powerpoint lecture at Andrews University Towers Auditorium on Wednesday
evening, February 1, 2006. The lecture lasts a little over two hours.
The attentive looks of the audience fire up my delivery with unprecedented
enthusiasm. The response of those who attended it was most enthusiastic. Over 200 persons
ordered the DVD album.
This has been a time consuming, but rewarding project.
During the past five months I have worked an average of 17 hours a day
on this project, getting up faithfully at 4:00 a. m. every morning. What
took a lot of time has been, not only the investigation into the historical
interpretations of the mark and number of the beast, but also the search
for pictures of the items discussed: documents, inscribed tiaras, books,
popes, Reformers, Adventist pioneers, and recent scholars who have examined
this subject. I wanted to make this powerpoint presentation as visual
as possible, because "seeing is believing." The powerpoint slides
should prove to be a valuable resource for evangelists, pastors, and anyone
engaged in sharing the prophetic message of Revelation.
With the help of beautiful slides, the study examines
the various past and present interpretations of the mark and number of
the Beast. I rejects the sensational interpretations of those who find
the mark and number of the beast in the latest electronic developments
in the commercial world: global banking, laser scanning, and the universal
bar code. Such interpretations are the fruit of fertile imaginations,
rather than of diligent analysis of the text in its proper context.
The study shows
that the Mark and Number of the Beast are essentially the same. They both
represent the evil nature and character of the endtime Antichrist determined
to enforce the false worship upon mankind. Revelation 13:17 clearly equates
the mark with the name and number of the beast. This means that the three
are essentially the same. They all represent the evil nature of the beast
manifested in the enforcement of false worship.
in the final crisis, is not about external markings of people with barcodes,
biochips, or pope's titles, but rather about the internal control of the
mind of every human being. It is a battle over who will people worship:
the true God or Satan. This battle is already in progress, affecting many
people and churches. This visual presentation will encourage you to be
faithful to God and to resist the deception of evil forces.
I have taken
this assignment seriously because I believe that this research can benefit
not only Andrews University Seminary Students, but also thousand of pastors,
teachers, evangelists, and probing Adventists who are seeking for a more
satisfactory interpretation of The Mark and the Number of the Beast
Most Adventists have limited access to the latest research
on the Mark and Number of the Beast, done by committed and competent Adventist
scholars. Our General Conference sponsored a 10 years study, known as
Symposium on Daniel and Revelation, published in 7 volumes. Other significant
studies on Revelation have been published recently. The most outstanding
is the 670 pages Revelation of Jesus Christ, written by Seminary Prof.
Ranko Stefanovich and published by Andrews University Press. Most Adventists
are unfamiliar with these recent studies. The aim of this CD-ROM powerpoint
presentation is to bring together and builds upon the latest Adventist
What makes this album with both a CD-ROM and a DVD disk on The Mark and the Number of the Beast UNIQUE, is the fact that it offers both a slide version and a live recording of the issues discussed. With the help of 195 slides, you will be able to see documents, popes, tiaras, Reformers, Adventist pioneers, authors, and significant books related to this study. Pastors, Bible teachers, evangelists, and Adventists who give Bible studies, will welcome this valuable resource.
